asparagus for dinner

local green asparagus is in season, early this year. i love those tasty stems and found a quick recipe to serve them once a bit different.
in the past i served them plain with sauce bernaise or hollondaise, or in a hearty risotto with freshly grated parmesan.

and then just yesterday i stumbled over this yummy looking recipe. they are rolled in ham and puffy pastry or if you prefer filo. bake and serve with a herb vinaigrette. everyone liked them, except some folks on our dinner table which just can not get them self to eat green veggies... (o well i can't help them)

with good friday and easter coming up, i will be gone for a few days. enjoying the celebration, retreat form the hustle-bustle of our little community and just be family a couple days.

Thank you for posting this idea, Daniela- I needed a good, dairy-free inspiration for asparagus. Marvin and I have been trying to be dairy-free until the spring pollen subsides, to see if it helps our allergies. So far, so good! Of course, you know me and my love of cheese, I have decided that my Mother's Day gift will be a return to cheese! Hope you all have a beautiful and relaxing Eastern weekend.
